Online gaming service provider Gan has agreed to supply its simulated gaming software to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, as part of a new agreement with the tribe.

The new partnership will launch the software services during the first quarter of next year, which will allow the tribe to expand its current suite of online gaming and services throughout its operating region and beyond.

Jeff Berman, chief commercial officer of Gan, added: “We are enormously privileged to bring one of America’s largest and most vibrant Native American casino resort operators online with our simulated gaming solution. 

“Southern California is a significant regional US gaming market, with the largest population concentration in the US, reinforcing Gan’s market position as the leading B2B enterprise software solution provider to ‘brick and mortar’ US casinos.”

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians currently owns and operates in three California-based locations, namely Agua Caliente Casino and Indian Canyons Golf Resort both in Palm Springs and Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa in Rancho Mirage.

The tribe will be the 15th casino operator in the US, and the sixth major Native American casino operator, to license Gan’s specialist software, which will allow patrons to link reward cards to their online simulated gaming account and receive reward points automatically triggered by online activities. 

“We selected GAN for its proven success in helping casino properties launch online gaming and for its ability to embed our on-property rewards program into an online experience,” Bill Oliver, CIO of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, said of the new deal. 

“Equipped with GAN’s simulated gaming, we will now introduce our casino properties online to a wider audience of casino enthusiasts located in adjacent regional markets.”
